Yeah they will get grain tell just before they calve the grain has all their minerals in it so when i stop feeding grain i`ll need to start giving minerals (i was going to stop feeding grain about now but there was a mix up at the mill and they sent me a lot more grain then i orderd so they will get it if my math is right tell just before they calve)

They are very close in height but the #9 is wider
